|The third excerpt represents the element of Water. It speaks of pure spiritual influences and feelings of love, and is drawn from Tarzan of the Apes by Edgar Rice Burroughs:
of your cabin.
That you never came to make friends with us has been a
great regret to us. We should have liked so much to have
seen and thanked our host.
There is another I should like to thank also, but he did not
come back, though I cannot believe that he is dead.
I do not know his name. He is the great white giant who
wore the diamond locket upon his breast.
If you know him and can speak his language carry my
thanks to him, and tell him that I waited seven days for him

|The fourth excerpt represents the element of Earth. It speaks of physical influences and the impact of the unseen on the visible world, and is drawn from Betty Zane by Zane Grey:
Wetzel live I would not give a snap of my fingers for Miller's chances. Hello,
I hear some one talking. I sent for Jack and the Major."
The Colonel threw open the door. Wetzel, Major McColloch, Jonathan and Silas
Zane were approaching. They were all heavily armed. Wetzel was equipped for a
long chase. Double leggins were laced round his legs. A buckskin knapsack was
strapped to his shoulders.
"Major, I want you and Jonathan to watch the river," said Col. Zane. "Silas,
you are to go to the mouth of Yellow Creek and reconnoiter. We are in for a
siege. It may be twenty-four hours and it may be ten days. In the meantime I
will get the Fort in shape to meet the attack. Lewis, you have your orders.
Have you anything to suggest?"
